I couldn't find a simple knit hat pattern using economical yarn that you didn't have to sew together at the end, so I created this pattern. Since it is so close to Halloween, I've turned it into a pumpkin hat using crochet methods, but I really like how the hat itself fits so I'm sure I'll be using this pattern again. The hat sits easily on my head, it is not stretched tight or snug, which is how I like it, and most importantly, I think it's super cute!
Size 8, 5 mm 16” circular knitting needles
